Contrary to popular belief, Muallaf was never banned. But this is a line that the censors requested to be muted:
The picture itself won't be cut, but you won't get to hear the line or read the subtitle.
Malaysians will finally get to catch the film when it's released here from 24 December. To celebrate the fact, my 5,100-word chapter on the film will be in the December-January double issue of Off the Edge magazine. It's actually the shortest chapter in the book, because Muallaf is, at 80 minutes, Yasmin's shortest feature.
